Description Christian Casteyde 2010-08-17 19:59:08 UTC
Kernel: 2.6.36-rc1
Athlon 64X2 4200 in 64bits mode
Slackware64 13.1
1GB RAM

While booting 2.6.36-rc1 with kmemcheck and several kernel hacking options, I get the following kmemcheck error:

Write protecting the kernel read-only data: 10240k
Freeing unused kernel memory: 392k freed
Freeing unused kernel memory: 1956k freed

Do not know what caused the nmi at start. The computer runs fine even after that.

Still present in 2.6.36-rc3.
Actually, there are many kmemcheck errors reported, very often on filesystem operation. Here are the different dmesg output I got at various time at boot:

dmesg n°1

uli526x: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full duplex

Duplicate I think of 17361 where I have other dumps.
